However the Wharf Station (and wharf) at Towyn on the Talyllyn Railway was located not alongside a waterway but alongside a railway.

Do passengers from Cambrian line trains “go ashore” or “disembark” at Towyn Wharf ?

Also is “Bridge”

a. A structure for crossing a waterway ?  or

b. A place on a ship from where it is navigated  ?  or

c. A card game ?

At least Lambton Quay was once at the water's edge. Whether there was ever a wharf/jetty/pier/dock or quay there I don't know. There are other quays in Wellington. However the Wharf Station (and wharf) at Towyn on the Talyllyn Railway was located not alongside a waterway but alongside a railway. 

 

Quay Street in Sydney is interesting - did Cockle Bay ever reach in that far? Or perhaps as far as nearby Pier Street.

Why is Sydney’s ferry terminal  “Circular Quay” It is not even  a true  semi- circle ?.

 

Is Circular Quay different to Sydney Cove ?

 

How is Quay Street (Railway Square) related to a quay ?

 

What type of quay is Lambton Quay in Wellington NZ ?

Ah yes, a very expensive restaurant with a lovely view of Sydney Cove and the Opera House - unless there's a cruise ship tied up at the Overseas Passenger Terminal.

So where does 'quay' fit into this example of pedantic semantics.

It fits in right here - http://www.quay.com.au/
